I used to have this app Bookout which encourages you to look into reading just like into any workout - you have to commit and do your part. It's supposed to help to track your reading, provide stats and bunch of other info which turns reading into a game. For some weird reason, all my books and data disappeared and I decided to store info about my home library somewhere more secure. While doing that, I realized how many books I have and how many are still untouched. So, I decided I would read all the books that I own before buying/borrowing anything new. And damn. It's a hard job.
I've heard about 'Doors of Perception' a while ago - my mother was reading it maybe a decade ago. It took my a while, but we have similar taste and she knows her way around the books. I remember how interested she was when reading the book and how inspired she was afterward. So, when I got my hands on it, I was really excited about that.
Finding the right book isn't as difficult as finding the right man, but it can be damn close. You won't know if it's the right one unless you start reading it. However, if you read many books or several at once, it can end really badly. So, how do you choose the book without opening it?
